Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas has become an annual holiday tradition as the romantic cable net cranks out dozens of new Christmas movies every year.
Since every installment is a story about a girl and a guy falling in love (almost always reluctantly at first) that means there is a never ending parade of holiday hunks we dream of meeting under the mistletoe.
Scroll through below to see our picks for the 12 hotties we wouldn’t waste anytime unwrapping if we found them sitting under our tree.
Aaron O’Connell, With Love, ChristmasHallmark Channel
The Shop Around the Corner gets a holiday twist when Donovan (O’Connell) starts falling for his Secret Santa—who he doesn’t know his coworker, Melanie (Emilie Ullerup). Secret or not, O’Connell is the type of Santa we want coming down our chimney.
George Stults, I’m Not Ready For Christmas
Hallmark Christmas Movie MVP Alicia Witt is put under a Liar, Liar-esque spell where she can only tell the truth. She falls for Drew (Stults), who discovers her good side when she finally stops lying.
Daniel Lissing, A December Bride
When Calls the Heart fans (Hey, Hearties!) already have a crush on Lissing from playing Jack Thornton on the comforting Hallmark series. In 2016 he made the jump to Hallmark Christmas movies, where he proved he was just as charming even when he’s not playing a Mountie on When Calls the Heart.
Rome Flynn, A Christmas Duet
How to Get Away With Murder hunk, Rome Flynn, trades the courtroom for a Christmas cottage in A Christmas Duet. Flynn plays a singer who reunites with his former duet partner, played by Chaley Rose, in her snowy Vermont cabin, and proceed to recreate some Christmas music magic.
Marc Bendavid, A Rose For Christmas
The Pasadena Rose Parade brings two people together when an uptight businessman (Bendavid) falls for parade float constructor Andy (Rachel Boston). We haven’t loved roses this much since Sasha Velour’s Drag Race Season 9 finale performance.
Steve Lund, Christmas IncorporatedBen Mark Holzberg/Hallmark Channel
Lund plays a Scrooge-like entrepeneur who is forced to close one of his factories the week before Christmas—until his headstrong new assistant Riley (Shenae Grimes) challenges him to fall in love with the holiday season—and her.
Andrew Walker, Debbie Macomber’s Dashing Through the Snow
Ashley (Meghan Ory) ends up having to road trip home for Christmas with a handsome stranger named Dash (Walker) who turns out to be an undercover FBI agent. Love and secret spy hijinks ensue.
Duane Henry, A Gingerbread RomanceHallmark Channel
You might be tuning in for Tia Mowry-Hardrict (Sister, Sister), but you will stay for Henry, who plays Adam, a local baker who steps in the last minute to help Taylor, Tia’s character, bake a giant gingerbread house. We are suddenly craving some Christmas cookies.
Eric Winter, Finding SantaHallmark Channel
Fuller House’s Jodie Sweetin may be busy finding Santa for her annual holiday parade, but she also finds love along the way when she meets Ben (Winter). Who can blame her? We would pause on our Santa hunt too so we could lock down this dreamboat.
Peter Porte, A Gift to Remember
Book lover Darcy Archer (Ali Liebert) accidentally hits Aidan (Porte) with her bike, resulting in him hitting his head and losing his memory. She then has to help him remember his old life—obviously one he spent with us.
Luke Macfarlane, Sense, Sensibility, and Snowmen
Macfarlane originally stole our hearts playing Scotty on ABC’s Brothers and Sisters. Since the family dramedy ended he has been featured on series like Mercy Street and The Night Shift, but we prefer him in a tight sweater lit by Christmas lights like he is in this year’s Sense, Sensibility, and Snowmen, and one of our favorites, Christmas Land, where he plays a lovable lawyer named Tucker.
Trevor Donovan, Nostalgic Christmas
Just when we thought Christmas couldn’t get any merrier, one of our biggest crushes, Donovan, comes to make our season bright in his latest Hallmark Christmas movie, Nostalgic Christmas. Like hanging stockings or unwrapping presents, we can’t wait to make him one of our annual holiday traditions.
